The City of God is St. Augustine’s meditation on the decline of the Roman Empire. He began to write it three years after Rome was sacked by the Goths under Alaric in 410 A.D. Rome had ruled supreme for 1000 years when it was sacked and Christians became the scapegoats.
The book took thirteen years to write. In the first ten books, St. Augustine wrote about Christianity versus paganism; in the second half of this huge work he moved on to the theology of two cities: the earthly city and the heavenly city, and to God’s intervention in human history.
This guide covers the first 10 books of The City of God.
